This is craziness! Make sure that you read your agreements before you accept apps for your Smartphone. I mean who actually reads all the way through them. Who expects for the app to do more than it is supposed to do. I don’t know about you but if I accept a Facebook app then I expect for it to connect me to Facebook and all of the capabilities and that is it.
The article attached (See source) is a must read. When I saw the part about YouTube possible accessing your camera to take pictures at any time I almost fell over. It also talks about Flickr and Yahoo Messenger possibly accessing your text messages. Wow!
Father Burns Flag In Protest of Whitney Houston Tribute
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about whether or not they agreed with Gov. Chris Christie deciding to fly the flag at half-staff to honor Whitney Houston who was of course a New Jersey Native.
But the father of a fallen soldier who died in Iraq took it one step further when he burned the New Jersey flag in protest. (Well at least he didn’t burn the American flag). He felt that it cheapened lowering the flag and that it should only be lowered for those who served their country.
The funny thing is that the gov lowered the flag for two other people who were not soldiers or policemen. They were Morristown coach Harry Shatel and E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons. I am willing to bet that there were not any protests those times. Hmmmm, I wonder why.
What this is about is the fact that Whitney Houston had troubles during her final years. There are many who feel that she should not be honored because of this. I say that she was an icon who influenced many and will continue to do so after her passing. How does honoring her this way take away from others who had been honored? I can see if the governor had a choice between lowering the flag for Whitney or lowering the flag for someone else on that day and he chose to do it for Whitney instead or if he lowered the flag for every Tom, Dick, and Harry. But he that is not the case.
I think this is along the same lines of the controversy surrounding whether or not to give the soldiers a parade. Although I think that would be a nice way to honor them, how about helping our soldiers get jobs when they get out of the service? How about making sure that they never again have to give their lives needlessly for a stupid war? Answering questions like these, in my opinion, is the real way that we can honor our soldiers who give their lives to protect this great country of ours.
How I Wish People Would Feel About Today (Valentine's Day)
Whether you are celebrating “Valentine’s Day”, “Single Awareness Day”, or “I’m Single Because I Haven’t Found Someone Who Can Handle All This Wondefulness and Hotness Day” just celebrate the fact that you are here today. If you have a partner in your life that you love great, but you know what everyone has someone in their life that loves them and that they love back. So if you don’t have a partner, grab your sister, brother, cousin, best friend…hell you can even grab your dog, give them a big hug and tell them that you love them and enjoy the love that you get back from them. That’s what today is truly about. Don’t let a holiday that was created by a company to sell cards, bears, and candy make you feel like you are unloved and unwanted.
And if you are single remember there is someone out there who is dying to be with someone just like you. So just because you haven’t met them yet doesn’t mean you won’t. So in the meantime, enjoy being your wonderful self. I’m not saying that to be corny, but to be for real. I saw a program this weekend and this woman was about 700 lbs and her boyfriend said she was a “bombshell”…..So yeah, there is someone for everyone. #imjustsayin :)
